Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

I was driving my car. It was running well and out of nowhere it wouldn't accelerate and the RPM's started racing. i pulled over. and the car wouldn't move afterwards. I was told it had something to do with the O-ring by the piston in the transmission, I never had it fixed though. My mechanic said the only cure is to drop a new transmission in, or have mine rebuilt. Both choices were too expensive. the average cost was around $2000.00
